the economy is right now. every economist predicted roughly 90,000 to 120,000. this economy doesn't feel like the employment improved this level. it is just -- maybe it's a coincidence that the month before the election, we have a number that comes out 1/10th below when the president took office. >> sean: jack welch is not the only one tawing of this timely development. listen to what business insider said on fox business new york this morning. >> i feel like i am watching a movie, a suspense movie. because there is no way in the world these numbers are accurate. and somebody needs to dig real deep into this. how in the world, miraculously, we have the best flz 30 years, right before the election? somebody needs to do an investigation, like they are doing an investigation in libbia. they need to investigate the numbers because there is no way in the world these numbers are accurate? >> the same administration not telling the truth about benghazi and libya and the death of four americans. there are very important questions that need to be asked of the obama administration. when you look at the
to understanding the problems of our economy, presenting a plan for the american people, so i think that paul is going to do -- going to do a great job, but i also think it's very important for people to understand, and i think people realize that joe biden is a gifted or ator. he is very good at rhetoric, and i think is he very relatable so i think it's two different people, and i think it's going to be a great night. >> have you talked to ryan at all about his debate performance, what he needs to do, that whole thing? >> sure. paul is one of my very good friends. i talk to paul all the time about a lot of different things, but i think he is taking it very seriously. sure. i think both parties should be nervous. i mean, it's a big night. it's a big -- it's always going to be a big night. >> do you think it makes a difference? there are a lot of people who say, look, the debates are a side show. it's all about -- do you think that ryan has to keep the momentum going from what was widely seen as a mitt romney win in denver? >> we had a good week last week. there's no doubt about it. we have to
's now the economy that has the e.u. facing one of its biggest crises yet. mounting debts, high unemployment, and austerity measures have triggered protests in some euro-zone nations. the economic woes have created deep rifts among countries using the joint currency, and raised questions about maintaining the euro and even their union. germany is the e.u.'s economic powerhouse. its chancellor, angela merkel, said the nobel peace prize shows the value of european unification. >> ( translated ): the euro is more than a currency because in the end it is foremost about the original idea, the idea of europe as a community of peace and values. >> suarez: but there were detractors, including those who said the e.u. hasn't dealt with an influx of immigrants. the director of amnesty international's branch that monitors the e.u. said he hopes the award would encourage the european union to be more open to refugees. >> suarez: the $1.2 million prize will be awarded in oslo on december 10. for a closer look at its successes and some of the ongoing challenges facing the e.u., i'm joined by a
. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the president is below 50. that's a danger sign for him. the economy is getting better. it all goes back to the electoral college. you play with the numbers, look at these polls, romney still has to win six or seven or maybe eight of the battleground states in order to take this. and right now he's not there. but he's in a better position clearly than he was a week ago. the economy getting better has caused romney to s
. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country's come too far to turn back now. >> so it looks like unemployment is getting better, but the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> you hear mitt romney pivoting talking about the real unemployment rate at 11%, so i -- i guess that's his pivot coming off the unemployment rate yesterday. randi, why does all this matter? as you mentioned off the top, the economy by far the number one issue with americans. take a look at this, from our cnn/orc international poll. we did it about a week ago before the first debate but i don't think it will change people's perceptions. by far the economy remains the top issue on the minds of americans. it's been that way since late 2007 when the u.s. economy went into a recession, and how do americans feel about which candida
from the truth, that is neither here nor there. he argued the case effectively. >> the economy created 5 billion -- million jobs in the past few years. is that true? >> i do not know. these numbers are so squishy. it is not 100% clear to me who is right about jobs. what i know is when they were saying on friday morning when they release those numbers, that for the first time, more people who were out of the work force were getting jobs. that is news. >> it is also important to keep in mind who had been hard hit by the economy. largely younger americans, african-americans, or hispanics. those who are either not going to vote or are supporting president obama. so i think you have got a pool of swing voters out there who are actually doing better right now in this economy than many people. >> let us talk about entitlements. >> if you are 60 or older, you do not need to listen any further. but for younger people, we need to talk about what changes will be occurring. >> if you are 54 or 55, you may want to listen. this will affect you. >> this was the debate over congressman ryan's plan to
, the candidates laid out two very different visions to fix the economy. whiled by continue wants to raise the taxes on the so-called rich. paul ryan called for this plan. >> cut taxes by 20% and preserve important preferences for middle class taxpayers. >> not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. it is precisely what we are proposing. >> it's never been done before. >> it has been proposed. taxes increase. >> now you are jack kennedy. >> when ryan's proposal end up resonating with independent voters with us is lou dobbs. okay, lou, so biden was trying to make this all out to be a bunch of funny biz with the numbers. like these numbers don't add up and there is no way you can do this. you are not giving us enough in the way of specifics. how did riden rate here. >> score this one for congressman ryan. in point of fact he is right. historically it has been done. the concept of reducing marginal tax rates which is the romney plan has been tested and historically and jack kennedy by the day with play a role. and for the record congressman ryan wasn
for the economy. if you love it, that's all that matters. matters. thank you for joining, everyone. >>> tonight, game on. the new mitt romney now in the lead. a confident candidate, a major speech. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east but hope is not a strategy. >> plus, neck and neck. sometimes it is about the horse race. to the man who arguably knows more than anyone about what the numbers in this race mean, nate silver. and battleground america. is romney gaining ground with female voters? women on the left and right go toe to toe. also, worldwide exclusive. what you haven't heard about the man who shot trayvon martin, the first television interview with george zimmerman's mother. why he says there's more to the story. >> he said you will die tomorrow. i grabbed my firearm and shot him. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. with just 29 days to go until the election, our big story tonight, mitt romney takes that post-debate bounce and boy, does he run with it. the latest pew poll conducted after last week's debate puts romney firmly
from. and every month has been worse. how do you say you had a successful economy when the whole time of your administration has been worse than george bush's? i mean, 7.8, is that the best month? that's the best month he had. what have we done? tripled the money supply. you have -- he has the stimulus package. you have all of these things and four straight trillion-dollar deficits. we are right back at the starting line on the economy. this is a failed president. there is no doubt about it. >> greta: the polls are out. some polls, right now, we are starting to see in postdebate polls that the impact of governor romney's win. it looks like governor romney is closing the gap in several swing states. according to a new rasmussen poll. in ohio, president obama is leading romney by 1 percentage point n. virginia, governor romney leads 49-48%. in florida, governor romney leads by 2 percentage points. 49-47. all three are in the markin of error, but they do show gains by governor romney. it appear hes got a bounce? >> he got somewhat of a bounce. this is like a great wave, greta it's vitall
to reward people who are doing well. it's different in the economy where we punish people who are doing well. i wish the president's education policies are based on that premise, clearly they're not. when he talks about, we need to put 100,000 new teachers in the classroom, i just asked myself. when is it the responsibility the federal government to go hire teachers for a local school board. your schools are your responsibility in your community. and in your state. and there's not one thing in the federal government constitution that says that the federal government ought to hire teachers for you, if you think you need more teachers, then you ought to hire them at your local level and let your school board decide who they are and what they teach. it wasn't just-- (applause) >> what the candidates said by the way that made the difference, i think it was their body language that spoke volumes. you're watching the split scene and see the difference. when mitt romney spoke to the president, he spoke to the president, looked at him. unfortunately the president never looked back and as you can se
campaign and white house were aware that they had a very ugly economy and the comments really do not get reelected under these types of economies. they have always come across as hungrier and more aggressive than the romney campaign. in almost every respect. they were ready for a fight from the get go. >> this is what makes the debate so puzzling. the campaign has been hungry. look at the advertising they have been running. really smart advertising. >> who is running the obama campaign? david axelrod? obama? who is running the romney campaign? is the family intervening? >> from the white house, david pluft was the campaign manager in 2008 when they were underdogs. now the senior adviser in the white house. he has the last word on most things in the campaign and in the white house. ji messina, the cam -- the campaign manager in chicago runs an organization carried on the run inside, romney, ceo. when people look back at that campaign, a big factor people will look at is how a this as a person could have created a campaign that has such fuzzy lines of accountability, a campaign management
're not getting that. look, we can grow this economy faster. that's what our five-point plan for a stronger middle class is all about. it's about getting 12 million jobs, higher take home pay, getting people out of poverty into the middle class. that means going with proven pro-growth policies that we know work to get people back to work. putting ideas on the table, working with democrats, that actually works sometimes. and then -- >> vice president, could we get to that issue of what you could bring as a man, human being? i'm really going to keep you to about 15 seconds here. >> he gets 40? i get 15. >> he didn't have 40. >> let me tell you, my record stands for itself. i never say anything i don't mean. everybody knows whatever i say i do. and my whole life has been devoted to leveling the playing field for middle class people. giving them an even break. treating main street and wall street the same. holding them to the same responsibility. look at my record. it's been all about the middle class. they're the people who grow this country. we think we grow the country the middle out, not from the
, wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? the choice is clear. a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic growing economy that promotes opportunity and jobs? mitt romney and i will not duck the tough issues. and we will not blame others for the next four years. we will take responsibility and we will not try to replace our founding principles. we will reapply our founding princip principles. the choice is clear. and the choice rests with you. and we ask you for your vote. thank you. >> and thank you, both, again. thank you very much. this concludes the vice presidential debate. please tune in next tuesday for the second presidential debate at hofstra university in new york. i'm martha raddatz of abc news. i do hope all of you go to the polls. have a good evening. >> that was 90 minutes that felt like it was about nine minutes. a fast-moving intensely combative debate for the vice presidential debate this year, focused on complex substantial issues of foreign policy as much as it focused on economic and social issues, obviously they di
and then narrow in. this campaign should be about big issues. it should be about the american economy. it should be about rebuilding that, rebuilding the american military. american values. what we're seeing with this president for four years is a weakening of the economy, weakening of the military and weakening across the board in foreign policy. tell me the place in the world where america today is more respected or safer and secure than we were four years ago. certainly not in syria, certainly not with iran getting a nuclear weapon, certainly not -- >> hang on. hang on. hang on. let me stop you in your tracks. actually, i would say one of the things that barack obama has done incredibly successfully is restore a lot of america's very damaged reputation around the world, since the eight years of george bush and all the warfare that came with it. i would seriously question that. i've traveled a lot through europe and so on. there's a lot of respect for america that certainly wasn't there six, seven years ago. >> the question is not whether -- it's always safer and secure. is the situation in th
to the path, because it's the mechanism that'll make all the difference. >> the economy plays a significant role in recruitment and retention. will the economy coupled with talks to change military retirement pay and health care have a negative impact on retaining a professional all-volunteer force? >> i don't know. but, you know, as i travel around and visit with young soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, and i also visit the coast guard from time to time, and i ask them why'd you come in, the answers are really varied. some of them come in because they want to defend their nation, and they know the nation's at war, and then some come in, as you noted, for economic reasons. what i will tell you is it doesn't matter why they come in, but because once you get 'em and you build into them this sense of purpose and sense of belonging, another attribute, by the way, that tends to be missing in american youth as they try to figure out who and what they are. by the way, i'm not trying to recruit you, but i will tell you that i'm happy to have your kids -- [laughter] but i will tell you that one
talking about today? are they still talk about differences on job, on economy, on health care? uh-huh. no. no. no. the number one issue that has taken hold more written about, more spoken about more than any other issue is big bird. yes, indeed. we remember mitt romney pressed to say, okay now look you say you are going to cut all of these programs. let's get real. give us one example of programs you are going to cut. >> romney: i'm sorry, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i like big bird, i actually like you too. >> bill: oh boy. it's so stupid just so stupid to lay that out there. this has been a classic republican attack line going way back. i remember when newt gingrich was speaker his number one issue, number one issue as speaker of the house of representatives was to cut all funding for pbs and big bird and all of the rest on sesame street. it never went anywhere. and you know why it's not going to go anywhere? because big bird is too popular and doesn't cost much money. if you are alive, right? you know pbs and enjoy pbs, if you have ever had kids o
in this economy. that is one of the reasons we had last schools, about 38 schools submitted this round, where 10 or 12 years ago, we had close to 40 or 50. >> let's move to the format. tonight these two gentlemen will be seated, as were the vice presidential contenders in 2000. why is that? >> the commission has studied long and hard over the years and we think the nature and tenor of discourse changes when you are seated around a table. we recommend this time as we did four years ago that all of the debate other than the town hall meeting, which is different, which will be next week, all of them are seated at a table. four years ago, senator obama and senator mccain asked us to do one with the podium. they did the same this time with the governor and the president. we are not going to argue about the format as long as they don't touch the integrity of the format itself. we think a better format in getting full discussion of issues in depth of discussion of issues is when you are seated at a table, rather than standing behind a podium. >> no one is more aware than you of all the discussion, and
going on in gasoline markets is the fact that the largest export in the american economy today is refined petroleum products. america is exporting three million barrels of refined product like gasoline, diesel and jet fuel out of the gulf coast but what that is doing is keep, refining margins nice and profitable but it is also elevating gas prices artificially higher than they otherwise would be. >>eric: could you suggest the refiners not sell to the best beller? >>guest: not if it is negatively impacting american drivers and the american economy. >>eric: so you want trade restrictions or protectionist? if you refine it here you keep it here and we make it more expensive for are to do business here but don't sell it anywhere elsewhere the standards are easier to deal with? >>guest: we already have those regulations over crude oil that is produced here in the united states. if you want to export american-produced crude oil you have on get a license to do so from the department of commerce. we ought to at least investigate whether the record level of gasoline exports from america
